sooner. it's in illinois in the second district there. jesse jackson jr. quit his seat there, holding a special election to replace him. the primary happens a week from tuesday. this is a heavily, heavily, heavily democratic district. so it is pretty well accepted that whoever wins the democratic party is going to win this seat in congress. that's why we had 17 democrats announce that they were going to run for this seat when it first became open. in a field that crowded and in a ace that is this short, name recognition and perceived status is everything. right? whoever seems like the obvious choice, whoever seems like the obvious choice, whoever is running in that primary, who themselves is a former member of congress and left congress in good standing with all the name recognition and the status that brings with it, that person is not necessarily a shoo-in, but that person who left in good standing, that person is probably the front-runner. but in this case, in this election, there is a problem with that would-be front-runner there is a problem with her record. there is a problem wi
